People are often unaware that microservices really need to be independent. For example, you often see that all kinds of services are being made but that one database is shared. Another problem is that people program what they were used to doing in a monolith, making the chain of synchronous calls between services (over the network !!!) much too long. Neither is attention paid to spaghetti structure that can arise from all kinds of services that use each other and services are tightly coupled. … [Read more...] about How to avoid turning microservices into distributed spaghetti code
No matter how big your organization, you're never going to have enough security resources to penetration test every application, or look at every line of code. Again, one of the cardinal virtues of microservices is that they accelerate change within and between applications. Going back to those developer surveys, companies have historically tried to build spreadsheets with a score attached to each application or service, but this has the problems mentioned above, as well as the difficulty (read: impossibility) of keeping it up-to-date. If you have hundreds (or even dozens) of applications that change all the time, it's unwise to rely on people volunteering information in a timely or accurate fashion. … [Read more...] about Best practices for securing microservices

Perhaps the most egregious are what may be called “mugshot AI,” which claims to unearth useful patterns from physiognomic characteristics. From phrenology to palmistry, pseudosciences that claim to tell personality and mental states from physical characteristics are nothing new. AI’s newfound ability to process, recognize or find patterns from large-scale physiognomic data has, however, given a dubious new lease to these dubious undertakings. Various companies claim to discern personality characteristics, including criminality, from mugshots or to speed up recruitment by analyzing job candidates from online video interviews. Indeed, there is a tremendous temptation to look for some arbitrary correlational mapping from one high-dimensional object — a person’s face, voice, posture — to another critical decision variable, given enough data. … [Read more...] about Why are Artificial Intelligence systems biased?
